Services and Fees
The Commonwealth of Massachusetts has established the base fee in solemnizing a marriage as follows:
100.00 – Marriages performed within the city/town in which the Justice resides.
150.00 – Marriages performed elsewhere in Massachusetts.
These fees include solemnizing your marriage and returning your license to the appropriate city/town clerk. Additional fees are applied in relation to the extent of your wedding ceremony and services performed. Ceremonial Elements and/or including a wedding party add to the complexity of the ceremony and prices are calculated accordingly on an individual basis.
While each wedding is unique, I offer the following examples of wedding costs:
$175.00 – A simple elopement-style ceremony held in the Falmouth/Mashpee area consisting of the couple, along with a few family and friends. In addition to solemnizing your marriage and filing your license, this price includes an introductory meeting, preparing your ceremony and unlimited communication via phone/e-mail. An additional cost may be applied for locations beyond the local community.
$75.00 – Rehearsals within the Falmouth/Mashpee area. An additional cost may be applied for locations beyond the local community.
$75.00 – Organizational Meetings at Wedding Venues located in the Falmouth/Mashpee area. An additional cost may be applied for locations beyond the local community.
$75.00/per hour – I am happy to assist with Other Special Requests such as organizing/planning with local vendors.
In all cases a non-refundable $75.00 deposit is required in order to reserve your wedding date. This deposit ensures that I will not book another wedding in conflict with your date and time.
The balance, along with your marriage license is due no later than 5 days prior to your wedding date.
